P7/6 Week Review 27.8.21

What a fantastic few weeks we have had. Everyone has settled into the new classroom routines and giving their all to the work in class.

Last week we spent time organising the classroom to suit our needs and we build shelves to house our books and also to provide us with a comfy seating area. We have also added a resilience station which we can access upon finishing our activities where we are given opportunities to focus on skills such as perseverance and team work.
We took part in some group work activities and had to design something to stop Humpty Dumpty (an egg) from cracking when dropped from a height. Mrs Smith was very impressed as not one egg was damaged even when we dropped them from an even higher height.

This week we have been focussing on the novel ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ and we have thoroughly enjoyed reading chapters 1-6. We started our novel study by looking at the different front covers for the book and then making predictions about what we think will happen in the story. We have also been answering questions about the main characters and what they are like and also creating a picture based on the author’s word choice.

We have started our learning on place value and we have been competing against each other to create the biggest or smallest numbers from different digits.

We created a wonderful door display with our names in graffiti writing on top of a crumbling wall. We have had lots of compliments from others pupils and teachers about our display.

Well done P7/6- keep up the hard work.

P7B Novel Study

It has been a busy week in P7B and the children have been working hard and have been enjoying the sunshine.

A key focus has been on our Novel Study – Divided City by Theresa Breslin. We have explored a range of themes including prejudice, religion and poverty. We have completed a number of tasks based on the text.

Thinking about the week as a whole, comment below with your thoughts on the week:

P7A Review of the Week 27.8.21

That’s our first full week completed and it’s been a fabulous one for getting outside. We’re starting to get into routines again and are getting really into our novel study – Wonder.

One of the tasks we have completed this week was to create these Wonder inspired inspirational posters.  We used the Sketches App to carefully draw an incomplete self portrait, inspired by the novel cover and section illustrations. We also found or created our own ‘Precept’ (motto) and added this.  There are lots of good messages to motivate and inspire us and this way Mrs Little gets to have us all still in the classroom, even after we’ve gone home!

Another big task this week was creating our door entrance and this year we went with an interactive Hollywood movie theme.  To do this we:

  • Took photographs of ourselves pretending to hold boxes…in some weird and wonderful positions
  • Filmed a short video presentation to introduce ourselves and created a QR code to link to it.
  • Added the QR code images to our photos and then made clapper board displays.

We are really pleased with the overall display and really hope others will soon be able to come and scan our codes to watch the videos but for now, here’s a sneaky peek!

Welcome to Primary 7!

We’re back!  P7 have had a great start to the new term and are looking forward to a great year.

What are you looking forward to?

  •  Many of our P7s are really looking forward to becoming a Prefect and we will be appointing these soon, as well as letting you know how you can apply to be a House Captain.
  • We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we will be able to have an activity week later in the year.
  • Having fun!
